Resident Evil Revelations finally gets an official release date, zombie hunters everywhere rejoice


Resident Evil Revelations, or the Resident Evil game for 3DS that isn’t a complete rip-off now has an official release date. From what I played of the game in it’s E3 build, I can most definitely say that this title will be something 3DS owners will want to have in there collection. Mercenaries 3D was a nice distraction and had some fun, addictive beat-the-high-score style gameplay, but honestly it could have been an additional mode in a proper Resident Evil title (just as the mercenaries mini-games before it were in Resident Evil 4 and 5). 

Revelations looks to be another title in the tried and true Resident Evil universe that sticks to the survival horror gameplay that has made the Resident Evil titles great. What I want in my Resident Evil titles is inventory management coupled with a few mind boggling puzzles to break up the “shoot the zombie in the head” gameplay.

If you plan on picking up the game, it may be worth your while to preorder from LameGameStop as they are offering a free bonus 3DS case to those that do. The 3DS case changes in the sunlight making your 3DS that much nerdier cooler.

Resident Evil Revelations will be available in North America on February 7, 2012. Who plans on picking up the game come next year?
